About the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF)

Since 1994, the Imaging Science Foundation has trained over 5500 video professionals to be ISF certified calibrators, and they have become the definable top service providers in their markets. 2011 represents a milestone for ISF. Our manufacturing partners will now deliver significantly advanced ISFccc calibration capabilities in well over 10 million HDTVs per year, and we have launched LEVEL II training for advanced calibration on these new features. All sessions now incorporate LEVEL II training for ISF certification.

Educating clients is the key to success in HDTV. ISF calibrators use test patterns and instrumentation to demonstrate, sell, and maintain video devices. With "High Fidelity Video" demos and periodic calibration services, ISF calibrators are the definable video professionals.

Day 1 - ISF LEVEL 1

Curriculum covers Global Standards, 3D mathematical imaging models, front panel controls, two point color balance, an introduction to color management as well as basic video processing, aspect ratios, the 3x3 component/RGB Matrix, HD and SD decoding, and a step by step calibration process. It also focuses on design as well as calibration of front projection systems with multiple screen technologies plus the deployment of the correct colorimeter for specific applications.

Day 2 & 3 - ISF LEVEL 2

The focus of ISF Level 2 is a hands on approach to ISF software guided solutions for advanced calibration. It also looks at system parameters including: EEDID /HDMI verification, 3D color management, multipoint color balance, optimizing multiple processing engines, system building diagnosis, Gamma/EOTF, advanced Gamut matching/distortion/manipulation, and other recent innovations.

ISF certification brings together attendees from many different backgrounds. Attendees are often home theater enthusiasst, HDTV manufacturing product managers, gaming creators and broadcast executives. In addition , we also welcome many A/V dealers, installers and distributors. Each will leave with an excellent perspective on delivering professional services for accurate and dependable electronic imaging.

Highly specialized test equipment is required to calibrate displays to multiple system standards. Attendees of the ISF courses will have the opportunity to experience various types of test equipment at our sessions. If you already own test equipment you are welcome to bring it along and compare it to world-class reference equipment.
